is wayne slater, senior political reporter for "the dallas morning news" and author of two books about rove, "the architect" and "bush's brain." thanks for being here tonight. >> great to be with you. >> you've covered karl rover maybe more than anyone. what was going on? >> remarkable. you had the word exactly right. it was denight. much of what i've seen karl, when he's been in action is as an analyst, where he looks at the numbers. he's a supreme aris ontilian nerd. what we saw that night was someone in absolute denial. he was effectively looking at the situation and not accepting the reality of the moment. it was as if he, like so many people have been watching conservative media, fox news, rush limbaugh, peggy newman, you look at other people who have said it would be romney in a landslide, they had an alternative reality that they were watching. i think karl may have bought into that. and at the moment when it was clear that it was all falling apart, and that he had taken millions of dollars from several billionaires, he was in denial. >> the last part of what you said, he had taken m

tonight. this is not safe. you're going to look like -- what was the dallas cowboys name? >> it's sports. i know nothing about it. >> in '93 he did the end zone dance three yards out and the buffalo bills came up and knocked the ball out of his hand while he was doing the dance and he wasn't even in the end zone. let's not look like that tomorrow. that's why, i said earlier, nate's been saying 70%, 08% now it's 90%. say it's 70% chance, but that means there's a 30% chance you hear he isn't. when you hear there's a 30% chance of rain there are. >> the very successful baseball hitters. >> 30%. don't trust that this is in the bag. don't do the end zone dance tonight. everybody up in the morning get out and vote and get up there and get people to vote because that other side they're going to be out there. believe me, republicans they are organized, they are disciplined, they are up at 5:00 in the morning. we're never up at 5:00 in the morning lawrence. >> you heard it from michael moore, no dancing tonight. michael moore, thank you for joining me. >>> coming up, voter suppression attempts in

's team, like the dallas cowboys. like he's the american candidate. who gave him that? where did he get that snrs 23 >> and we've got people on the right saying there are threats of race riots if president obama loses, which is disgusting. glenn beck and rush limbaugh claim that health care is reparations. i agree with you chris. i think that revenge remark feeds right into that. look at what they're going to do to us. it feeds into paranoia. >> it's been a continuation from day one. mitt romney has gone out there and said that barack obama doesn't understand america. he doesn't get america. he's not one of us. ann romney has repeatedly said barack obama is not a grownup. you talked about john sununu saying he was lazy, he didn't understand america. it's not even code anymore. it's this guy is not a real american. donald trump can say he is born overseas. newt gingrich can say he's an african in terms of his temperament and ideas. it's all part of this continuum that mitt romney has not said no to. >> read michael smerconish's column today. it is along these lines. it is brilliantly wri

to dallas. and then through the weekend, a large storm moves through the northern plains. it's also going to be a big temperature change behind it. and finally as we get through your sunday, notice finally beautiful weather for the eastern seaboard. but everyone there in the middle of the country from chicago to dallas, you have a chance of seeing a two or three-hour period of soaking rain along that cold front. we leave you with a shot of new york city where gas rationing has started 11 days after hurricane sandy. it's ridiculous how long these lines are. we need gas to be distributed and supplied. let's go, now. you're watching "morning joe" brewed by starbucks. welcome aboard!
